Patient identity software company LifeMed ID and PETLinQ, a education and software company that targets the general multi-modality outpatient radiology and PET center market, have partnered for patient identification and authentication.
PETLinQ is instating LifeMed ID’s SecureReg software to its customer base in the U.S. This card registration product identifies and authenticates patients every time they have an appointment or procedure. The product then brings up the patient’s medical record, verifies insurance and displays a photo ID.
SecureReg claims to reduce duplicate patient records, admission error, fraud and accounts receivable delays. Patients use a smart card containing their demographical and vital health information for check-in and registration.
